we have stayed at WSMR often and always enjoy the beauty and quiet surroundings. They have installed new electric pedestals and "night light" stanchions. It can cause some parking problems for rigs with slide-outs and short hookups. The pedestal and stanchion are directly opposite each other, toward the front of of the site, right on the edge of the site. This makes for a narrow space about a 1/3 of the way from the front of the site. Since we have 3 slides-out and basement doors, we either had to park towards the rear or the front of the site, not the middle. We parked near the rear since we have a 38' rig. This necessitates a long 50 amp cable (in our case) and long sewer hose, as the sewer connection has been moved next to the electric pedestal. A shorter rig could park near the front. The saving grace is that these are some of the longest sites I've seen at a military RV camp. While it is not a well thought out placement of the pedestal and stanchion, in my opinion, one can certainly work around it! The MWR (outdoor rec.) mgr. is a super nice lady! We'll continue to use this facility many times a yr!
